Google App Engine

I just took a look at Google app engine. I wrote a quick dirt CRUD application to see what it's all about. It can be found at What amazes me is that it is python based...

I wonder why google uses python so extensively. I've used it for a number of things and find it very useful, but it just doesn't seem to have the momentum in corporate america of the "big J". On the other hand, it has tremendous street cred and is embedded in tons of open source tools.

I found an interesting writeup here: Python at Google (Greg Stein - SDForum) it looks like google architects from the ground up and the guys on the ground said "python works for us".
